This drink belongs to the "(Naval) Bomb" category of cocktails that often involve brandy. Drinks like the Depth Charge or Depth Bomb are designed to hit you hard with flavor and alcohol. The main component is apple brandy, as you can see from the bottle of Laird's in the foreground. In the background is this funky aged gin from Filibuster. Only a quarter tsp. of gin is in there, but lots of flavor pops out from it, particularly that aged and prohibition style gin spice flavor. Two thumbs up for the Torpedo!
  • 2 oz. apple brandy (Laird's used)
  • 1 oz. brandy (American brandy used)
  • 1/2 tsp. gin (Filibuster Dual Cask used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
